Well, hello to all the Dave's! Sorry Shadow, Dave is just too cool of a name eventually we all want to be a Dave or you will be assimilated into the collective.
Picked up the bike yesterday and had to make a decision, 20min by super-slab or an hour on the back roads. Well even though it was 42(f) I went for the long way. Tones of twisties, wind and OMG the damn cold but all I can say is I am more impressed with the bike than ever before. One thing though is even with the OEM windscreen wind was a real problem at 65mph+. I am going to have to replace that ASAP as my daily commute will be on the super-slab at 75mph+ for thirty minutes.
Same type of weather and temp this morning but I still had to take her out for a longer ride with some of the guys. Adjusted the chain and off we went. Once again to damn cold and the wind hitting me square in the chest sucked but the twisties more than made up for it. This bike just instills confidence in me. I just never knew I could ride like this with my classic bikes. However, saying that, you will always see "Chicken Strips" on my tires because I don't ride like that on the streets. Too much gravel, wild life (deer, antelope, and turkey just to name a few), and dumb*** around here to ride like that. Okay enough from me for one day. Stay Thirsty My Friends and ride with the wind at your backs.
